Roasted Corn and Radish Salad with Avocado-Herb Dressing

    Wonderful salad...it awakened my sleeping tastebuds from a dreary winter of too much soup & casseroles! The "green goddess" dressing was thicker than I thought, but it was a great foil to the slightly bitter radish and lettuce. The sweet corn off the cobb made the salad! I would make this again but either add meat/seafood or serve it as a side salad to an entree since it seemed a little too light for dinner.

    YUM!! The avocado herb dressing is extremely tasty (keep to the one clove of garlic or it will overpower the other delicate flavors!!!). The corn baked in the oven was probably the sweetest corn I've ever eaten! The bibb lettuce was expensive and I might change it to spinach when I make it again. My husband said to add more avocado to the salad.

    By far my favorite salad. I make this all the time if you haven't tried it you are missing out.

    This salad is very easy to make and the perfect dish for a summer get together. The avocado-herb dressing contrasts the sweetness of the roasted corn wonderfully, and the radishes add tartness and a needed crunchiness. I also recommend eating it with a slice of baguette.

    One of our new favorite salads! Roasted corn on the grill instead of the oven (it's summertime:)). Used some jarred anchovy instead of paste. I was worried the anchovy would overwhelm the dressing but we didn't even taste it. Used a whole avocado in the dressing and omitted the slices from the salad. Served with grilled pork.

    This was tasty. My radishes were a little bland so there was no great contrast of flavors, but it was still good.

    This was a very good salad, and I would make it again. I cut the raw corn off the cobs and sauteed in a skillet with a little oil for a few minutes, to save time. The dressing is delicious (though I did omit the anchovy paste and chives since I did not have those items on hand) and I definitely recommend that you make it.
